My wife and I stayed here from August 1 through August 4th. We were in town to do all the historical tourist stuff and catch a Phillies game. The Loews hotel was a perfect choice. First let me start off by saying what makes this place great is the staff. Everyone we encountered that worked here was very pleasent and helpful. To us that goes along way. The hotel is a unique historical building. The room was very large and had a very large bathroom with a great view of the city (we were on the 26th floor). To us it was a gorgeous hotel.
The location of the hotel was perfect as well. Its maybe a 15 minute walk to all the historical attractions. If you gout the door and take a right you will be at the Liberty Bell etc. If you take a left you can walk to City Hall, the Masonic Temple etc. Also when we went to the Phillies game there is a SEPTA station a block from the hotel that takes you right to the game in maybe 10 minutes.
The hotel has a very nice lobby bar with great bartenders. The drink prices are a little high but oh well.
Anthony at the front desk was extremly helpful in helping us plan our days and providing directions and he was always pleasent and rembereed our names( again may seem like a small thing but it goes along way) I highly recomend this hotel and I am sure if we got back to Pilly we would stay here again.
